I'm not sure, there is not much info online. Maybe I'll see if I can find some contact info for the organizers and get some more info.

From what I got from a few emails, it's not mainly a carnivorous plant show/sell. There will be a few members selling and Barsch Tropicals is a confirmed vendor. Chet Blackburn will be there so I know there will be some impressive plants on display. Hopefully I can get to talk to him and a few other locals that have more experience growing in this hot and super low humidity.

Some pictures. I was pretty disappointed by the selection of plants for sale, but then again I think the focus was more on bromeliads.

That's one spectacular Truncata. I wonder how many years of growing went into getting it to that point.
